Holiday Special

Celebrate this holiday season with fellow internationals

Bringing some joy and light into everyone’s life is more important than ever this holiday season, especially now that a lot of us can't go home due to the coronavirus measures. We need the joy and beauty of the different holidays and traditions. And we want to connect to family, friends but also new people. This is why we, the ambassadors of UR-Glocal, made this Holiday Special: to celebrate, support and connect.

Let’s make the most out of this holiday season with this online special filled with fun holiday themed activities for kids and grown-ups and everything in between. Connect with new people during Christmas dinners, make your own holiday decorations, learn new recipes during the cooking workshop, donate food for those in need, enjoy Utrecht Region’s holiday activities and more.
